    Which is my point, all Dems on the coast will support this therefore giving this a chance to hit Barry's desk.

    Understood.
    At least it is a step forward though, whatever her motives?

    Sen. Landrieu calls for new drilling practices, not a moratorium

    Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) called on President Obama today to reconsider his ban on offshore drilling in waters deeper than 500 feet.
    In a letter sent to the President, Landrieu said, “I write to urge your immediate reconsideration of the blanket six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling projects, and ask that you consider instead a series of fundamental changes to offshore drilling practices that will serve to demonstrably reduce the risk of deepwater drilling while sparing the Gulf Coast’s economic vitality.”
    The Senator offered eight suggestions or requests, some from the President’s own report on offshore safety received in late May:
    1. Permit deepwater drilling to proceed through non-hydrocarbon bearing formations to just above the targeted reservoir interval.
    2. A firm timeline — shorter than 6 months — and commitment by the President to the re-opening of the U.S. offshore to investment and development.
    3. Identify and analyze critical processes during the drilling and completion of deepwater wells.
    4. Identify achievable benchmarks to reduce risk and communicate to the American public.
    5. Deploy a team of inspectors to every deepwater rig.
    6. Rigorous inspection of drilling plans and operations, including revised drilling plans to incorporate lessons learned from Deepwater Horizon accident.
    7. Compel operators to have adequate emergency power equipment.
    8. Assess and certify the competence of offshore personnel in emergency management procedures.

    Acknowledging that there is no risk-free energy production, “I believe that we can demonstrably improve the safety of deepwater drilling without shutting down the Gulf Coast economy for more than six months,” Landrieu said.

    Senator Landreau earlier this week.

    Oop's, who is in control of the house? I bet the Senate will pass it and Barry will be in a huge box trapped like a rat. Sign's it and his tree huggers will abandon him, don't he is gone......either way America wins now and in 2012!

    The worst thing is there does NOT need to be new drilling,there are thousands of capped wells ready to begin operation within 24 hours,except the EPA etc. will not allow. Sickening

    There is a ton of petrolium in CA, but most of it is a real thick sour crude.
